What a Mess

What a Mess I Have.......

When I had my 3 Grands over night 2 weeks ago, I thought I would really Kid Proof the place
So, I took & just piled "Stuff" in boxes & bins to place in My Large storage closet.....

Now this is when I need to Back Up & Tell You WHY... While My Grands Love to Create & are
Very Good at Listening, Helping to clean up & put Stuff away

Mem (6) is Creative & Loves to spend time with her Bubbie.... it so reminds me or My Grandma, whom I Credit for All of My Creative Thoughts Today.... Eme (2) also loves to color, but that is about all I let her get into.... Now into the mix we add the Newest Member Mill (2 Months)

This was the Very First Time, I was going to have Charge Over All of them at My Little Place (about 700 sq ft.) for the Entire Night

I thought it would be much easier for ME to have all the Fun, Tempting, Creative "Stuff"
Out of Sight ~ Out of Mind (we still had movies, games & toys)
So this is Why the Stuff ended up being Stored....

Now comes time to Pull it All back out What I was hoping to be a productive weekend
Re-Organizing & Creating Turned into a On Call Care Day & a Lazy Sunday

I Must, I Must, I Must get into this pile starting early tomorrow morning.....

I Promise I will post an Updated photo on the Improvements ~ Soon

[BTW ~ do you love my $10 Garage Sale Table]

Hope everyone had a great weekend

Please remember to Enter the "ThanksGiving"

  1. Too funny! BUT...a girl's gotta do, what a girl's gotta do to keep her sanity. Bet you had a great time with the kiddos though.
    Have a great week.

  2. It doesn't look like a mess to me, Cheryl...looks like a lovely pile of creative possibilities! (That's what I tell myself when I see my piles, anyway!) I see NO dirt on the window, either! You remind me of how I see every tiny thing out of place only when people come to visit! Hope you had a great time with the grandkids, and have fun creating!

  3. Their parents will appreciate you Kid proofing the place. Makes the visit much less stressful for their parents! You are a greeat Grandma...and how fun! I know that is a pile of treasures! I am coming right over!


Thank you for visiting... Have a Happy & Creative day ~ Cheryl
